I've made these cookies over the last two years and the recipe works great for large cutout cookies! The kids love to roll out the dough and decorate them after. These are supposed to be "tea Biscuits", but I love them rolled out thin and cut with cookie cutters big and small.
This recipe was difficult to roll out whether refigerated or not. It needs more lemon extract.The cookies were hard as a rock.After making them I checked internet resources to be told NEVER MELT butter; it makes cookies too hard which is true!
These are good if you want a real light dessert or snack -- they are not very sweet. I doubled the lemon extract, which worked out well.
made these with my children. Nice simple recipe to follow. you must chill dough in fridge if you want to make shapes with cookie cutters as it was a bit sticky. They tasted lovely - nice with a cup of tea !.Children really loved them . They kept quite nicely in an air tight tin for three days. Would make again. My husband enjoyed his with some vanilla ice cream. Oh and make sure you take them out of oven when EDGES are turning golden brown as they cook faster on the bottom and may burn without you realising!!!!
My daughters really liked these. The only thing they said was that the lemon taste could have been stronger.So next time I'll increase the extract or use fresh lemon juice. I will be making these again. Thankyou.
These are great! It's really just a lemony sugar cookie but that's just what I wanted. The lemon flavor is very mild so next time I might use a little more extract. This ones a keeper!
The best. I used part arrowroot flour and part whole wheat. They were just right. I baked them a little longer. Next time, I will experiment with orange extract.
we all liked these biscuits!
i didnt change anything.
would make again,i love lemon flavoured things.
